Toyota Mark X Vs. Honda Accord


The Toyota Mark X and the Honda Accord are Japanese mid-size cars. The Accord is exported to the United Statees, and the Mark X is a domestic car that is not available in North America. However, Toyota is developing some interesting features in a variant Mark X, the ZiO, which promises flexible cabin configurations to suit the needs of the occupants and their cargo. It may foreshadow the Mark X when it does eventually arrive in the United States.

Mark X Performance

  • A supercharged version of the Mark X V-6 is available that boosts output to 316 hp and torque to 304 foot-pounds, with power transmitted via a six-speed automatic transmission. The Mark X is stylish, and if equipped with the supercharged V-6, offers more than enough power, according to


  • The Accord has become more conservative in its exterior styling in recent years, but still offers plenty of power and good cabin room for its occupants. The obvious disadvantage of the Mark X is the fact that it's not available in the United States, but Toyota enthusiasts are confident that it will arrive eventually and perhaps exceed the Accord in comfort and performance, according to and carlopedia.
